Want more of a break down on how it works?

IN SALON:
> Check in, get your head wrap, make sure you have color conserving shampoo and conditioner and change into your robe.
> Next, you'll have a consultation with your stylist who will go over the homecare guide and have you sign a waiver.
> Then your color will be applied and we'll place on your head wrap.
> Before you check out, we'll set a timer on your cell phone for when you need to rinse, make sure you have your homecare guide and send you on your way!
AT HOME:
> Wait for the color to process (it's your time, do what you like!)
> At the recommended time, follow the instructions on your homecare guide and rinse out your color in the comfort of your own shower.
What you do after that is up to you!

Are you a candidate for our RedBloom Express Services?
To receive these express services, it needs to be a tried and true formula that we have previously used on your hair; this helps us ensure the results. It can be a solid color, a gloss or even a toner for you blondies in between a highlight appointment.

Why did we create RedBloom Express Services?

To save you time and money, while still enjoying the same great salon service. Because we think that you shouldn't have to sacrifice on professional service to have fresh, beautiful color all the time.

We heard you. More and more women want to spend less time in the salon but still want to keep up their color. So what were the options? Trying your hand at box color? Wearing hats? Feeling uncomfortable with your regrowth? Hair mascara? Well, we think you should have better options than that, which is why we are bringing you EXPRESS color services. We know many of you lead busy, on-the-go lives and sometimes it's hard to fit that time in for a fresh color. With our innovative express color services, we've created a way so YOU CAN fit in that color appointment because you deserve fresh color more often.  Because less time sitting in the salon chair = more time for real life 

Another bonus of our RedBloom Express services? THE SAVINGS! We know getting regular colors can add up and sometimes that may even prevent you from coming into the salon. But our express color services can provide an option to still get a professional color and have a great salon experience at a lower cost.

Fancy Ponytail Tutorial

Take your ponytail up a notch this holiday season with this FANCY PONY TUTORIAL!

With only slightly more effort you can change your pony from basic to fancy! It keeps it low maintenance, while still looking like you put in some effort.

We demonstrated this tutorial on long hair but it can work on shoulder length hair as well. Also we went for more of an undone look but you could also make this same style into a smooth and polished look instead.

Give it it a try and don’t forget to tag us in your #RedBloomInRealLife selfies!

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice - Why RED is the it color for Fall 2018

It’s official - Fall has arrived in Calgary. There is a new, crisp feeling in the air. The leaves are changing to vibrant colours of red and orange. We’ve even had our first snowfall! With the change of the season, we often are ready to make room for changes in our lives. Many of us look to our hair as an opportunity to express seasonal change. There are different ways to change your hairstyle - a new colour is a ravishing way to express yourself and embrace the cooler weather.

Red is one of the biggest colour trends we are seeing this fall. Switching out blonde or brunette locks for a new, brilliant shade is an exciting way to try something new. From influencers such as Daisy Clementine, who rocks beautiful copper locks with effortless style - to celebrities like Emma Stone and Julianne Hough, we are seeing shades of red everywhere this season. Red has immersed fall fashion in many copper and auburn shades. So it’s safe to say, RED is the it color for fall 2018. Red is a magical colour. It is a colour that commands attention. It is a color of passion and love. A colour that enhances human metabolism and raises the heart rate. We love red so much, we named RedBloom after it! Why not try red this season, and open up a whole new realm of style expression?!

Here is an example of a transformative red done recently in our salons. Hillary has been a guest of RedBloom for over a year. Hillary (@hillaryjtaylor) works as a instructor at Barre West here in Calgary, and has a new creative endeavor on the horizon. She’s been rocking blonde locks for a long time and wanted to make a change. She didn’t want to be blonde, and she didn't want to be brunette. Having dabbled in shades of strawberry blonde over the summer, she was finally ready to take the plunge and go red. Here are some before and after photos from her most recent session:

As you can see, a fresh colour has transformed her style! Having never had a hair color quite like this - Hillary now has a new fresh, fierce attitude to take on the world. We styled her new locks with some loose beach waves. For this look we used Evo Salty Dog Beach Spray. We also added some Aveda Control Force for effortless texture. Hillary paired her red locks with this gorgeous black blazer! But did you know redheads can rock colour too? While black looks stunning on a redhead, don’t feel like you are limited to only black. You make the rules! Have fun with it!

Want to try out this hair trend? Bring some of these color inspirations to your next appointment, and let your stylist find the perfect alchemy for you. Trade in your blonde locks for some copper or strawberry. Brunettes - try auburn, or mahogany. Whatever your style, let your RedBloom stylist help find the perfect shade of RED for you! Don’t forget to tag #RedBloomInReaLlife wherever your hair takes you!
